Orlando Pirates

Belgian Lorch Interest Revealed…

The reigning Absa Premiership Player of the Season, Thembinkosi Lorch, is a wanted man as the end of the transfer window draws closer, with sources revealing that there’s interest in him from Belgium. 
 
 
Lorch, who recently turned 26, missed Orlando Pirates first game of the season due to injury, with the Buccaneers managing to get the job done without him as they ran out 3-1 winners over Bloemfontein Celtic. 
 
Milutin Sredojevic will be eager to have ‘Nyoso’ back available this week as they begin their CAF Champions League campaign against Green Eagles of Zambia, with the Bafana Bafana international set to play a critical role for the club should be remain in Pirates colours. 
 
The attacker’s goal against Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations, however, saw him catch the eye of scouts overseas, and the Siya crew has been led to believe that Percy Tau’s former employers, Royale Union Saint-Gilloise, have made enquiries about his potential availability. 
 
According to Siya sources, RUSG have considered making a move for the Pirates star as the ambitious club continue their pursuit of promotion into the Belgian top-flight, though it appears that – at least for now – the club isn’t willing to part with their in-form number three. 
 
 
The crew will continue to monitor the situation in the coming weeks as the transfer window draws to a close, but it seems as though it would take an offer of upwards of R20m for Bucs to even consider selling their star attacker. 
 
Attempts to get confirmation from Saint-Gilloise regarding their potential interest in the attacker were unsuccessful.
